Piano is one of the most tender musical instruments ever created – the soothing melodies one could play with it know no bounds, and it’s not a coincidence that you want to become a piano player yourself. We’re here to talk about digital pianos in general – what they are, and what you should know before purchasing one, among other things.
Yamaha's most affordable digital piano.
Authentic to the touch
Yamaha's GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) weighted action has heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, just like the hammers inside an acoustic piano. Great for the aspiring pianist, practicing on the GHS action builds the proper finger technique for when the time comes to perform on an acoustic piano. Plus the matte finish of the black keys are less slippery when playing for extended periods of time.
Tried and true, Yamaha's classic sound engine for realistic tone
AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) sampling uses digital technology to record the sound of an acoustic piano. AWM Stereo Sampling creates a deeper, richer and more spacious sound by using pairs of waveforms (L and R) captured with two microphones. The P-45 uses AWM to play one sample per key at varying levels of volume and timbre.
A compact and lightweight design makes it easy to get around
Slim and stylish form with a depth of less than 12 inches, the P-45 requires little space. At only 25 lbs. with a built-in sound system, it can be easily moved anywhere in your home or even used for performance outside.
Simple, single-button operation
Various P-45 settings can be changed with a single button. Hold down the "GRAND PIANO/FUNCTION" button and press the keyboard to change Voices, play demo sources, configure the metronome and more.

- Far superior to rest of the keyboards
Love this digital piano, it has the feel and sound of an expensive grand piano not to mention the other sounds that are included. This is my second Yamaha digital keyboard, I still have my first Yamaha 61 key and this is an upgrade. I've tried all the others and this is the best quality and value. Yamaha makes great keyboards.
